Luck is seemingly all chance, but not really the case with Amazonite crystal. With the shade of blue-green, it can be perceived as the lush foliage we see in the Amazon rainforest.
With the combination of lead and water, those ingredients have created the Amazonite’s dazzling green hue that we see on the stone. This is a reflection of the soothing and calm nature of the Amazon River. This stone works well in calming you down in times of stress and anxiety. This crystal can also serve as a significant source of power in the heart chakra area. This stone can also help in the release of toxic emotions. This can be done by placing the stone on your chest.
On a physical level, our heart will let go of things eventually. However the Amazonite will help in removing the emotional over time. When you meditate with the crystal, visualize a river, a flow of water that is washing away psychic debris and negativity from past traumas.
Amazonite is a powerful throat chakra stone above all, its healing properties help in moving beyond the fear of confrontation or judgment. This enables you to express freely and show your true self. This makes sense as people in the gem world often say that the crystals choose you. It is said when Amazonite picks you it’s because you’re in need of the truth, even if it hurts you.
Amazonite also gives us the wisdom to recognize compassion through energizing and supporting the heart chakra. It teaches us to love ourselves and to not be distracted by societal norms, gender roles, and cultural expectations that could otherwise cloud the truth.
Amazonite is also a powerful manifestation tool too, but here is how you can get the most effectiveness from it. First, enter a space that has been purified and cleansed with a sage stick. Bring the crystal stone with you, hold it into your hand and use an affirmation that can help you take on the world with a “can-do attitude”. An example would be “I can achieve anything that I set my mind to.”
Lastly, to fully understand Amazonite, it’s important to look at it’s significance in its name and its history. When we understand Amazonite in that way, we can better use its healing properties and meditate on a deeper level with it.
Although Amazonite has Amazon in its name, its relation to the Amazon is coincidental.
Amazonite is known as the “hope” stone. It’s an excellent manifestation tool as mentioned before, but it especially works when you incorporate its energy in daily meditations. This makes sense as when we allow ourselves to be true to ourselves we can better manifest what we want in our lives.
Amazonite was also used back in the ancient times too. The blue-green hue of Amazonite was a notable feature of lavish and opulent Egyptian emperor tombs. Amazonite was also often paired up Lapis Lazuli (a dark blue gem) and Carnelian (an orange gem) too. The most famous of those instances was the mask of Pharaoh Tutankhamun which was decorated with Amazonite.
Amazonite is also regarded as a good luck charm and can also be found in distinct jewelry design. Some examples are of course the mask mentioned above but ancient Indians had some too. They carved Amazonite into a round cabochon shape. This made it perfect for setting certain jewelry like earrings, rings, and pendants.
